For a few brief days on the Northern State University campus, several statues wore knitted hats and scarves.

I couldn’t stop looking at the hands.  The scarves were held in place by the hands, destroyed the craftsmanship by doing so.

I miss the brightness in that part of campus, and that I didn’t take more pictures while I had the chance.

A few extra snapshots for my March scenes, due to the fact that I saw Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West and some Cubs games during spring training.

Finally, a Precious Moments update!  Several of my co-workers and friends are in the NSU Faculty Exhibition.  (FYI, the exhibit closes March 21, so come by the Lincoln Gallery at NSU to see this in person!)  One of whom is Sara Christensen Blair who was busy smashing Precious Moments in January.  Here are a few shots of the finished project:
